Spaceships take geometric shapes that seem less than aerodynamic. "It's good if it looks cartoonish," says animation director Keith Kellogg. That said, if a jump does not look realistic enough, it's back to the drawing board. Kellogg says he spends hours making various gestures and expressions to help his team of artists. Those artists recycle various animated movements, but change small details -- the angle of a head, the color palette, the decor -- to keep it fresh.

Fox's "Sleepy Hollow," which employs around 150-200 crew members, is projected to film through December, as it continues production on expanded 18-episode second season.
